Below, we explore why the cellar door experience is vital to Australian wine culture, and why to book your visit with us.
Why the Cellar Door Experience is So Important in Australia
The term “cellar door” is generally thought of as an almost exclusively Australian experience, with few places outside of the country using the term. It refers to a purpose-built room or building designed to enhance the wine-tasting experience of visiting clients. Here, visitors can sample a range of wines (or even other alcoholic beverages) as a try-before-you-buy service offered by wineries. In fact, research indicates that a large percentage of cellar door visitors end up purchasing wines to take home and enjoy themselves or with friends and family. Most wineries are also situated in gorgeous locations that offer a scenic trip full of natural wonder to behold, which creates a getaway feel for those seeking to take a break from busy city living. Our Ampersand Estates winery also offers a cellar door experience, along with a gin and vodka lounge where guests can try our handcrafted artisanal spirits.
